The current president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has come under fire from Ghana’s previous head of state, John Dramani Mahama, for failing to accept responsibility for the country’s economic difficulties.
Mr. Mahama explained that the first step toward resolving the issues is for the president to accept responsibility for them and convene a meeting with all of the relevant parties to discuss potential solutions.
During a campaign tour and an interaction with delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Tuesday, March 27, at Awutu Senya in the Central Region, he said that when he was president of Ghana, he accepted blame for the energy crisis that hit the country and promised to solve it even though it was not his fault. He added that he did this despite the fact that it was not his fault.
It is not true that President Akufo-Addo behaves in the same manner as he described.
They don’t take advice, they don’t acknowledge when they’ve made a mistake, and as a result, they are unable to grow from their experiences. Despite this, they are not taking responsibility for the problems that the country is facing.
“The energy crisis was not caused by me; rather, it was caused by a lack of generational addiction for many years.” However, I went to Parliament and took responsibility for it, and I promised to fix it.
“That is what being a leader is all about, but this president can’t even take responsibility for his actions,”
